North Korea continues to make threats against the United States, and now reports indicate that they could soon have the capacity to launch an attack on Hawaii that would devastate America’s Pacific military bases! We know that today the United States relies on ground-based ballistic missile interceptors deployed in California and Alaska to protect the Big Island from any such attacks, but unfortunately, these defenses would do little to guard the U.S. territory in the Pacific
against a North Korean intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), which officials believe according to new reports is nearing completion. According to the Washington, Free Beacon, The U.S. Missile Defense Agency in February test fired a new SM-3 Block IIA missile from Hawaii that successfully intercepted an incoming ballistic missile, but the Pentagon does not maintain a permanent missile defense installation or detection capabilities on the Hawaiian Islands. Are we about to see a full-scale war between the United States and North Korea? How will the newly elected president of the US handle such a volatile and evolving threat?
